    Heh, actually as I think about it, would be cool to have some sort of Post Apoc game where a lot of technology is eliminated and armies were using a mixture of WWII and more modern weapons. But as a CoD game i doubt it will go there.

    In any case the guns during WWII were not weak... I mean ask anyone who got SHOT by them.

    A lot of those bolt action rifles stayed on longer as sniper rifles because of their accuracy. Modern weapons have increased their power but now they are more to do with rapid fire and reload. I mean look how the M16 came around? worst rife ever, especially compared to the AK-47 however it was still adopted over the M1 Garand, mostly, i'd say, for it's rate of fire as a rifle.

    But this stuff can all be researched. I suggest someone actually does that rather than insult people over the interblags

    Well true (though I DO like the P90 and submachine gun weapons in that game, I guess thats just my playstyle) but in reality it WAS one of the worst weapons ever. I think the game uses an upgraded version. The reason why it was so bad had more to do with it's practicality and maintenance. It sure was powerful and accurate, BUT it needed to be cleaned constantly and considering their first service deployments that meant a LOT of time just training people. they were also largely plastic from memory and made horrible melee weapons. the AK on the other hand could be dragged through MUD and still fire, as well as a heavy stock and bayonet.

    See Fallout 3.

    The current M16 is a totally different weapon from the 'Nam era. It's far superior now adays.

    Madster, your SCAR is an ugly weapon. I do like the FN Five-seveN though.

    Assuming you are talking to me.

    I dont know why you mention China. But. Call of Duty was probably the first game ever to not depict Russians as sinister people plotting to overthrow the world with broken english. I MUST BREAK YOU!

    Although Red Alert 2 was good fun.

    Its not even bad because it's so cliche. It's just racist.

    And its easy to do.

    Commies aren't a race of people dude. Xenophobic is the word you're looking for.

    i agree that WW|| weapons are fun. but i also like the more modern games. i think its kinda bulls*** that their goin back to f**** WW|| cuz its just gonna be like COD3 and that was the worst game in the franchize, it looks to me like COD is goin down hill. they better blow gamers away with COD5 or no ones gonna buy it, gonna be like COD3 all over again
